Early Childhood Now Open for Enrollment!

Early childhood is a magical time. At Anchorage Waldorf School, the magic is inherently fostered with a curriculum based on growth of the whole child: body, soul, mind, imagination. Now enrolling for all three early childhood classes:

KINDERGARTEN

Children ages 4-6 are free to explore their environment in a warm, inspirational setting. The foundation for academic success is acquired through a rich curriculum of storytelling, movement, purposeful play, artistic and practical activities. The daily, weekly and yearly rhythm fosters a strong sense of self, connection to the world and creative thinking skills. 3-day and 5-day programs available.

 

NURSERY

3 year old children, ready to take their first independent steps away from their parents, are free to explore and play in an environment that encourages their budding gifts to unfold in a gentle, beautiful, natural setting. 3-days per week.

 

PARENT-CHILD

Parents and small children, ages birth to 3, get a glimpse of the rhythm and philosophy of Waldorf education through discussion, meaningful work & artistic projects. Weekly playgroups run 6 or 9 weeks. Three sessions throughout the school year are available:

  • September 15 through November 11 (9 weeks)
  • January 12 through March 10 (9 weeks)
  • April 6 through May 12 (6 weeks)

Building Bridges to Waldorf Teacher Training, Alaska Cohort

ConcentrationWe are excited to share the news that the Center for Anthroposophy and Antioch University, both located in New Hampshire, are teaming up to create a new Waldorf teacher training program here in Alaska!

“Building Bridges” is a series of introductory workshops for practicing Waldorf teachers interested in Waldorf training at Antioch University. This program is designed to introduce the foundations of Waldorf education found in Anthroposophy through study, group discussion, and the practice of the arts. The series of weekend intensives will take place throughout the 2016-2017 school year on site at Anchorage Waldorf School.

If you are interested in learning how to better support your classroom through a series of 7 extended weekend workshops within Alaska and/or acquiring Advanced Standing Status at Antioch (potentially reducing your Foundations coursework there from 3 summers to 2), then follow this link for details and registration: https://www.centerforanthroposophy.org/building-bridges-wa…/.

A minimum of 12-15 applicants are needed to move forward with this coursework, the location and times of which are yet to be determined. Please share this valuable information with your colleagues to make this important opportunity become reality up North.
